SNAPSHOT by Progressive.I had the snapshot mailed to me previously, but never plugged it in. I was skeptical as to why they were really asking us to try this. Jim had it sent to me after I whined and complained about my renewal rates coming up in November 2012.
I was watching Fox news one evening and one of the commentators was bragging that because of his Progressive Snapshot, his premiums had reduced by at least $400 in one year.
I got the thing plugged in around mid November 2012, I think. I cringed every time I heard it beep when I would hit the brakes a little too hard, which happened, of course, within the first week!
However, since then, here is what I’ve paid in premiums since October (the month before my renewal):
October I paid $68.83
November I paid $74.19
December I paid $73.67
January 2013 I paid $64.92which is now lower than the premium I was paying before my November renewal. I am quite pleased with these results, and as you know, have to admit Jim was right and I was wrong. Their motives weren’t “ulterior” as I suspected!
This little gadget is quite cool actually.
Thank you, Jim and Sue for everything.
After 25+ years with a leading insurance carrier, I wondered if I could find similar coverage at a more competitive rate. I met briefly with Bivona agent, Sue Mersing, who offered do some checking for me. In less than a week, Sue met again with me, presenting me with several options from different carriers. In the end Sue saved me over $100 per year on my car insurance and $200/year on my homeowners insurance, and both with better coverage. Sue made the otherwise grueling task of searching for better insurance so easy and so pleasant. I have recommended her highly to my friends and family.

I’ve known Jim Bivona, of the Bivona Insurance Group, for more than three years, and in that time I have come to learn that he is a consummate insurance professional. Through his numerous years of experience, Jim has not only saved me money on my own insurances, but has opened my eyes to the benefits of working with someone like him. More than that, Jim is a caring and dependable friend who has challenged and encouraged me to carry on in my own business. Integrity and humility are two adjectives that come to mind when I think of Jim.
